    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Odeon Cinemas (Manchester, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and then was invited for a F2F interview the following week. The interview was skills/experience based, having attend the interview over 3 weeks ago I am still yet to be contacted with an outcome and/or feedback. I feel very let down with this interview process and feel I have been unfairly treated. I did not feel as if the interview went badly and I have chased the recruitment partner 3 times for feedback/outcome/update and still haven't been communicated with. Terrible customer experience and feel very let down.

    Customer Service Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwich, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Odeon Cinemas (Norwich, England (UK)) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Greeted by a man with a clipboard with about 40 other names on. I was surprised at this because I didn't think the position would be so popular.I was told to go upstairs to the gallery where about 30 other applicants were waiting. We were split into two groups. My group were led to a screen and sat down in the front seats. One by one we had to go up to the front of the screen and talk a bit about ourselves. People generally spoke about their interests, films, travelling etc. The 3 staff sitting at the back would shout down faintly obscure questions if you ran out of things to say - 'cats or dogs?' 'favourite food?'.
    After this ordeal, we were sent back to the gallery and waited for a one to one interview. I felt very unrelaxed as everyone in the gallery was listening. I found the whole process quite unprofessional. Questions in the interview included a roleplay 'A customer is very upset because kids have been kicking his seat the whole way through the film - what would you do?', practicalities of working hours/transport. and questions like 'what are your values of trust?'

    Deputy Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brighton, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Odeon Cinemas (Brighton, England (UK)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Having reached the third stage of the interview process of which I had initially thought was going well I was declined for what I think where unfounded reasons. Due to; lack of eye contact during the interview, unfortunately its hard to maintain eye contact when your interviewer looking at their notes, my lack of experience of leading a large team, surely a candidate whom has four years leading various sized teams, travels a five hour round trip to said interview, has the determination, skills and passion to succeed within the ODEON.
